At this festival contemporary writers & readers meet in a beautiful west coast setting. Friday evening offers a stimulating mediated panel discussion & a brief glimpse at all of our writers. On Saturday you can attend individual annotated readings with each guest author. The Literary Cabaret on Saturday provides all the components necessary for an entertaining & stimulating evening: readings, music, & good food. Socializing with the writers & other like-minded readers is a key rewarding element of the festival. The venue, Campbell River's Maritime Heritage Centre, provides a perfect nautical backdrop for this event.
